Other associated conditions include aortic insufficiency (20%-30%) (35), aortic stenosis, infundibular pulmonary stenosis, left ventricular noncompaction (40, 41), atrial septal defect, coronary anomalies (aberrant left coronary artery with separate origins of the left anterior descending and circumflex arteries) (35), left-sided superior vena cava (42), atrial septal defect (43), patent ductus arteriosus, and hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (44).
It is important to exclude congenital mitral valve anomalies, mitral valve prolapsus, mixomatous mitral valve, Kawasaki disease, miyocarditis and dilated cardiomyopathy in the differential diagnosis of mitral insufficiency and to exclude aortic valve problems related with other causes including bicuspid aorta, aortic valve prolapsus and subaortic membrane in the differential diagnosis of aortic insufficiency.
